Had the opportunity to spend some time visiting this excellent museum that extols the highlights and virtues of this iconic movement in the history of music. You can even do a self-recording and send it to yourself!

This is worth a stop -- but only for about five minutes. If you're following the Blues up (or down) Highway 61 this gives you some perspective. You enter through the gift shop, which I think is very intentional. If you want to go on...More

Loved the way this visitor center is decorated! We didn't actually go into the museum, just the lobby portion. Lots of good maps and information on local restaurants and such.
